Unfortunately, not everyone is a candidate for Invisalign aligners. Some teeth are just too crooked to fix with aligners. Six Month Smiles short term orthodontic treatment is a modern twist on tried-and-true orthodontics. There is little debate within the orthodontic community that braces are the most widely used and most effective method to give patients straight, healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. Six Month Smiles has taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults a common-sense, cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle.
- Clear braces
- White wires
- Average treatment time is 4-9 months.
Comprehensive Orthodontics (Braces)
Comprehensive orthodontics, or ‘braces’ as they’re commonly called, provides a powerful vehicle for moving from any position. If initiated early enough, and in conjunction with functional appliances, treatment can change the direction of growth and give the jaw line and facial profile a straighter look (as opposed to only straightening the teeth themselves).
Missing Teeth, Implants, and Teeth that Need to be Missing
Every tooth matters.
Teeth create you. Yep. We’re that bold in saying it. The fundamental building blocks surrounding a beautiful, youthful face include your teeth. They provide facial support, bulk, tautness to your skin, and form. Teeth are obviously involved in chewing but the ‘smile’ is more than just white chicklets.
Missing a tooth?
Implants are a state-of-the-art dental procedure that will restore lost single teeth to turning those old dentures into hockey pucks. They are technically tooth ‘root’ replacements and will act and feel like a normal tooth. The procedure is relatively painless with most patients relating that an Advil was all they needed. Missing a tooth? Dental implants are the answer.
Every tooth matters…except wisdom teeth…
and, yes, we take out wisdom teeth right here in town!
First line therapy for snoring is an oral appliance. These appliances gently hold the jaw in a forward position and prevent the tongue and other soft tissues from sliding back and obstructing the airway. Snoring is often a symptom of another underlying, and much more serious, issue called ‘sleep apnea’. Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder where breathing actually stops periodically. These episodes not only rob individuals of much needed sleep but are also associated with serious conditions such as cardivascular disease, depression, weight gain, and many others. You may have sleep apnea if you snore loudly and/or feel tired even after a full night’s rest.
A little nervous?
We are happy to provide Nitrous oxide (Laughing gas) to help you feel more comfortable…for any procedure. Another options for anxiety is in the form of a little pill absorbed underneath the tongue (Ativan) which can also help quiet those jittery nerves. Ask us for our recommendation.
